Director's Welcome

Welcome to HealthVisions Midwest’s website. I invite you to visit us often as our continuous work in the community and our partnerships with stakeholders grow constantly.

HealthVisions Midwest is dedicated to serving our most vulnerable citizens- those living in poverty, those with chronic health needs, and those with little to no access to healthcare.



Our vision is to create healthy communities by empowering people to live a healthy life. We accomplish this vision by collaborating with other organizations to reduce health disparities among the underserved, and working for systemic changes through advocacy and direct service.

For 20 years HealthVisions has adapted to the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve. Our quality services have always focused on dignity and respect for all.

I encourage you, as you navigate our website, to share in our Mission and Vision.

You are welcome to enjoy the stories of the history of HealthVisions Midwest and how, through the work of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, our work is possible.

Our guiding principles of Transformational Innovation, Disciplined Collaboration, Scalability, and Sustainability will demonstrate how we can all work together to truly make a difference.

Thank you for visiting HealthVisions today and for making a difference in the lives of so many.

Paula Wills

Executive Director
